Millions of pictures are posted on Flickr. Five Card Flickr takes those pictures and puts a creative spin on a web album. Now, while this site may be blocked for students to access, teachers can still use and plan a lesson around this terrific concept. Just like in five card draw in poker, this site allows you to pick five photographs at random just as you would from a deck of cards. Once the cards, or photos, are selected you have to write a story about it or a story starter line. You are allowed to save your photo and then share it with others. You can upload your own photos to Flickr and then use those photos to create a story line for students.
